Garry. 1386 was originally called 'Pshaw' and was owned by P R Shaw, 36 South Down Rd, Shoreham-by-Sea and Sussex Motor YC. As mentioned above she is a Proctor Mk X11 built by Chippendale probably in late 1960 or in 1961 and finished by her owner.
The 1964 YB shows her name changed to 'Pannap' and a new owner N A Perry, 19a Campbell Rd, Brighton at the same club.
The 1969 YB shows is the first record of her name as 'Dazed'and a new owner as D A Shaw, 29 Shirley Drive, Hove, Sussex BH3 6NQ and SMYC.
By 1971 she had moved to Worthing SC and another owner. K M Spells, 32 Victoria Rd, Worthing.
She had another owner by 1972 N J Waldron, 10 Marine Crescent, Worthing and the same club.
The year books show no more changes until 1989. By then her name was 'Old Un Hairy' and her owner was E Chantry, 79 Mayfield Close, Bognor Regis at Pagham SC and that seems to be the last recorded change in the YBs.

Rodney is famous for designing the Tornado catamaran, a B class, which was taken from the lines of Thunder. He also designed the Dart range of cats as well.
